Course Objectives The aim of the course is to understand the transparent rock-forming minerals. The main goal of this course is identify of different kind of minerals using by their optical features, thus the practical part of the course is important as well as the theoretical part. In the laboratory, students examine the mineral and/or rock thin sections under the polarisan microscope, and find out the optical characters of the unknown mineral. As a consequence of this, name and group of the mineral is determined.
Course Description Optical mineralogy is a course including investigation of the optical characters of the transparent minerals. It treats the behaviour the light passing through the different environments such as isotrope and unisotrope. The course contains also refraction and reflection of the light, optical signs, optical indicatrix. Beside these, optical characters of the major rock-forming minerals under the polarisan microscope are the main subjects of the optical mineralogy.
Course Outcomes 1.Principle of the optical mineralogy
2.Behaviour of the light in the different environments
3.Optical properties of the minerals under the polarisan microscope
4.Optical features of the different mineral and/or mineral groups
